“I was able to reflect during the confinement to put together a project. French football must be reorganized, which is wrong now ”, he launches Luis Fernandez in an interview on L’Equipe. He wants to bring together two generations, the one from 1984 (Champion of the European Championship) and the one from 1998 (Champion of the world) “to put together a common project”.

The Tarifeño reveals that “players like Amoros, Giresse, Tigana, Barthez, Boghossian, Petit, Pirés, Deschamps, Vieira or Zidane they want to help me. I told them: boys, we cannot continue like this, we have to defend the next French soccer elections ”.

The coach who has also been through PSG, Espanyol and Betis, among others, remembers that “all the great teams call their history to strengthen themselves. In France we don't do something like that. ” And that is why he now wants to gather a select group of a dozen former players to strengthen the candidacy.
